If you'd like to send us photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow our basic rules: First, the pet must be on a piece of furniture. And said piece of furniture must be clearly visible in the photo, so it takes center stage rather than your pet. (Think of it more of a photo of a great piece of furniture that you want to show off...and your pet happens to be sitting on it). And second, the photo must be of decent quality. If it's dark or fuzzy (from a camera phone) then it may not make the cut. Thanks! (Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to email@example.com and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!)
"This is my dog Chip :) He basically lounges wherever he feels like it, and lately he's taken a liking to our white eames lounger... He slept through the whole thing!"
"This is a cat that was "ours" for a weekend in Matjiesfontein, (Karoo), South Africa. We stayed in a house built in the early 19th century with amazing interior."

"This is Lula, my nearly-two-year-old cocker spaniel. She alternates sitting in my green $8 flea market chair and lying on the custom benches - just as long as she's near the kitchen table and whatever food happens to be on it."
- Rosemary (Little Rock, AR)
"I've attached 2 photos of my sweet dog Yoda on the couch in our den. He loves to lie beside me while I browse all the amazing posts on your blog! Thank you for the constant inspiration!"

"My Maine Coon "Gabby" on our Eames Lounge."

"There are a lot of critters in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and as for the last 12 years our lazy lovable Brittney 'Jake' takes it upon himself to keep all of my grandparents’ property. Between his patrols he finds time to relax on the newly built front porch."
"Photo 1: Our older cat Camille (she's 14) performing her chair hatching pose.
Photo 2: This is Kirin (yes, he's named after the beer) and Ome, our recently adopted kittens sharing our version of the Ikea changing table hack, we made the bed smaller so it hides nicely behind the curtain.
Photo 3: Kirin and Ome on a cat perch made out of an old coffee table cut in half. We used all four legs to match the window height."
"Our bloodhound Rufus, bleary eyed and caught by surprise on the couch"
- Colin & Jada (Washington, DC)
"My, excuse me, Speck's (our mini long hair Dachshund) favorite chair is this leather recliner. Can you tell how comfortable it is?"
